This sterling silver flared bypass shank features a striking profile–the ends flare from 2.3 to 5 mm. The bypass design creates a wrapped look and usually allows a bit of leeway for small sizing adjustments.
Ring shanks are ideal for achieving a proper fit with a custom-made mounting for fancy-cut gemstones such as princess or cushion. Solder the setting in place, set your stone, then finish and polish.
• The size of ring shanks is approximate since some adjustment is necessary when adding your setting. All shanks require finishing.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
